Ctiluert Olson called the special election when pension leiul- t-'S deluged him with petition.'! Bearing 1,000.000 names, but he emphasized his opposition to Ihe plan. Controversy became so healed (hat registration was the liigh- fSl for any previous special election, with 3.C06.D07 persons making themselves eligible to vole. The retirement life payments act s known popularly as $30-cvcry- Thtirsday" or "Ham and Eggs for Californians." All persons over tlie ge of 50 who arc neither employers nor employes would re ceive 30 $1 warrants every Tluirs day to be used in lieu of money fo taxes, food, stale obligations am other needs. Virtually (he Same The amendment, up for elcctioi is little different from the one do feated lasl year, except thai al public employes must be paid li cash instead of the former pro vision of half cash and half warrants. The amendment requires that a two-cent stamp, .sold by the state for cash, be affixed to the back of each warrant every week for 52 weeks. Thus, stamps totaling SI 04 finally would be attached to eacl certificate. The slate then would redeem the warrant and have four cents surplus for administrative costs. Opponents contend the weakness in the plnn is that many merchants will be unable or will refuse to accept script and the warrants will have so limited si utility that the whole system will bog dowir through the burden of affix ingr stamps' each week to certificates' which cannot be disposed of immediately. • • President Roosevelt stepped into the fight;; with the • warning "not to lei'.ourselves be misled by those who advocate short cnts to Utopia or fantastic fiscal schemes."

End Poverty In California Socialist, author Union Sinclair \, whose EPIC camoalirn for pover- nor in 1933-34 really started the agitation for generous old age liensirns, emerged Trom retirement to blast the "ham and CRBS" plan as "unworkable." He declared little business would be "slaughtered" should tlie plan lie passed. Hollywood promoter Willis Allen has formed his pension advocate.? into a veritable army, particularly in Southern California, with captains and workers in every voting precinct. House to house canvasses, nightly meetings, radio programs^ speakers and a nourishing "hani and eggs" newsuaper have been used to soread the cause.
